T is for Twas the Night before Christmas

Today in my A to Z trip through December, we are on T! To check out the earlier posts, click here

Before we get to T, though, I'd have news!

I'm excited to announce the winner of the
$25 Amazon Gift Card
Congratulations to Mae Clair!  Enjoy! 

I know Clement Clarke Moore originally titled this poem is "A Visit from From St. Nicholas", but we call it "Twas the Night before Christmas" and my family reads it aloud every Christmas Eve.  Unfortunately I don't have quite the range of vocal techniques that Jim Meskimen achieves in the video below... hmm, maybe we should gather around a laptop this year and watch his version! He is amazing!

Do you have a story or poem that you tell, read or recite every Christmas?

omg, thank you for the gift card! I just saw the email in my inbox and am super excited about winning. Thank you, thank you! I'm in love with Amazon :)

As for a favorite Christmas story, I don't read one, but I love to watch A Christmas Carrol each year whenever it's on. I never tire of that story.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
